On the eve of perhaps the most important day in MLB history, let's not forget something that has failed to be mentioned. Steroids saved baseball. Where would we be right now without the HR chase of 1998 with Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa? Ever since that year, attendance figures has increased to record numbers. Why? Fans dig the long ball. Home runs are being hit at a pace never before seen.
Where was the uproar then? Why all of a sudden do we get so involved in this that it
-Notre Dame is 0-5. Will they turn it around and become bowl eligible? Doubtful, but how sweet would it be for them to beat USC? That one win will be worth this season. This is what happens when your best players are Sophomores and Freshmen.
-To Anucha Browne Sanders, please stop talking. "I did this for every working woman in America." Oh, you did? If you did, why don't you send them a part of the $11.6 million you just made.
-As for the Knicks, Isiah
It comes a time for every professional athlete to hang them up, to say good-bye to the game they love and have played since they were a child. Mike Mussina has proved again that the time is now for him to go. He just simply doesn't have it anymore. It becomes more clear after every start that the hitters either aren't fooled anymore or his stuff isn't what it once was. Or, the more likely fact is a combination of both.
Could this all be caused by an injury that Mussina is hiding?
I know I said I would make a new entry about Old Timer's Day, but combine work, summer league baseball, a social life with a stomach bug, I haven't had much time these past few days. Anyways, here it goes.
7:00 AM - I left NY's capital region with my dad, a friend from baseball and his dad for the Bronx.
8:30 AM - Stop on NYS Thruway for breakfast at McDonald's. Hotcakes
9:30 AM - Arrive at Yankee Stadium. We head over to the player's entrance
I just got back from going down to Old Timers' Day today at Yankee Stadium. Since I'm exhausted, tomorrow, I will talk about the great time I had and if you have never been to Old Timers' Day, you really should go. It was a blast.
